Windows 10: Fonts Will Not Install
Fonts Will Not Uninstall
Adobe Photoshop is so slow that it is unusable and i am 90% sure it is because i have a lot of fonts. So i deleted them from my windows font folder.
But they refuse to go away. the fonts still appear and are still usable in gIMP and Photoshop.
So deleted every single font that windows would allow and still no change.
i used CCclean and made sure to tick the font cache option.
still nothing. i have restarted my computer several times and nothing.
What is going on?
UPDATE: Using XNVIEW, i went into the windows Fonts folder and deleted all the fonts that were still there, but hidden from me when using Window's explorer to view them (it automatically opens up in that Fonts control panel thing). I deleted the fonts, again. gIMP and FontBase no longer include the uninstalled fonts.
Photoshop does, however. So, i am not marking this as solved.

Reason: Screwed up title.
The speed of Photoshop is not based on it's fonts. It is more then likely that you need to assign a different Scratch Disk to a different drive External Hard Drive as Scratch Disk for Photoshop | TrickyPhotoshop
The Photoshop Fonts are Windows Protected Fonts and it takes a few extra steps to delete them. If you must delete these fonts, try this: How to Delete Protected System Fonts in Windows 7 (with Pictures)
Thanks for the reply. I have already assigned scratch disk to a different drive.
The fonts are system protected fonts, they are fonts i have downloaded. i have a lot of them. almost 3000 i think. i deleted them all. i think i have like 45 fonts left in my font folder. they are still appearing in Photoshop and gIMP.
Did you look at the link for Deleting Fonts in post #2? it suggests going into the Windows Registry to delete them there
i DL'd NexusFont and Fontbase. NexusFont reports only 45 fonts installed, as it should. However, Fontbase reports all the fonts that i had previously. i have no idea where Fontbase, Photoshop, and gIMP are getting there information.
UPDATE: Opened fonts folder with XNVIEW and what-do-you-know. The files are still loading/being counted, but over 500 so far. i have no idea what they are or why they are there. But they are
thanks for the help and i will update my OP once i delete these files and no for sure it will fix it.
:( My problem is outlined in these two threads and stated better then I can; they also show the same errors im getting with some pictures at these two links . Yet they don't offer a working solution to my problem.

Since updating from Win7Pro to Win10pro, I cannot install any new fonts. I can view fonts already installed and the ones I am trying to install, but when I try to install a new font, a window flashes briefly and goes away. No error message.
